Join us on Wednesday, October 7 for the first PTO meeting of the year. Our new principal, Mrs. Lee, will join us. Can’t wait to see you, albeit virtually! Zoom information to follow.

If you press the Alt buttons and the [] buttons at the same time it will split the screen. This will allow students to have Zoom open on one side of the screen and their work on the other.

The scarecrows are coming! The scarecrows are coming!

ACE is thrilled to be hosting the 8th Annual Scarecrow Festival in downtown Andover! The theme this year is “Our Community.” We are encouraging our participants to create a scarecrow that represents what our community means to them. This can be a person, place, culture, school, organization – the options are endless and we can not wait to see what everyone creates!

Make Your Own Scarecrow
You too can support ACE and the Andover Public Schools by purchasing a Scarecrow Kit and displaying your very own Scarecrow in your yard!

This year, more than ever, we need to continue to support our community and help provide our schools and teachers with the necessary resources and tools that they need to teach our kids.  

Questions? Please contact Jennifer Srivastava at jsrivastava@aceandover.org.
